Merit Badge Days are an opportunity for Scouts in troops, crews or ships to work on requirements for one or more merit badges. Classes are taught by career professionals and Scouters with real-life experiences in the field. These are not give-away merit badges. In order to receive full credit, Scout are expected to read the merit badge book before the event, participate fully during the class, and complete prerequisites. The merit badge classes are interactive and require active participation by each Scout. Merit badge class sizes are limited so that each Scout has the opportunity to learn about future careers, trades, citizenship, hobbies, and life skills while working on merit badge requirements.
